    Default Paypal Spoof email

    It's had an email from "PayPal" asking me to confirm a £72 payment to eBay

    They need to be up earlier that that lol , spoke to PayPal and a handy tip they told me is any emails they send to hotmail shall have a green shield attached , if it's not there don't click the link folks !!

    Just hover over the link and see the real link

    Never heard of the Green Shield in an email
    They went years ago!

    I've never had to click any link in an email received from PayPal (personal account)
    I always login separately

    People really are gullible if they follow such phishing links...

    I checked the green shield on my hotmail account , and he was correct , all other emails had it against PayPal except for that one
